Painting over Elastomeric

Hi, The exterior of my house (recently purchased; just outside of Los Angeles) needs to get painted. It currently has a very old and cracking elastomeric on it. I have had two folks come out so far. The first, a licensed painter suggested painting over the elastomeric with a latex paint (Dunn-Edwards) after a coat of primer had been applied. The second, a salesman from a company specializing in elastomeric, says that the exterior of the house will not take to a latex paint and that only another coat of an elastomeric paint will do. Who is right?

I don't have the budget for the cost of a elastomeric but the cracks and peeling (on the wood - painted with a latex paint) is chipping pretty badly.

Thanks for the responses.

Elastomeric is the way to go. It will fill in all those voids if back rolled or back brushed. Spend the time on prep, then spend the $$$. Kelly Moore paints in your area would be my go to store. Last time I used their product it was not to bad on the pocket book. Make sure you talk to the sales rep about color matching, and just how to use this product...............Good Luck......
